how long will it take?

For everything there is a season.

-Ecclesiastes III, KJV

There is no process that does not require time.

-BJ Palmer

Time is one of those subjects that your doctor will not want to talk about. Most people, in fact, will try to play into the hands of the consumer with their wishes. Most patients, consumers, and customers want the goods NOW. Sometimes that is possible. Sometimes all it takes is one adjustment, and that individuals life visibly and completely changes. I had that happen just this week. However, more often than not, healing, and therefore changes, take time.

The real question is, “How much time?”.

That depends on how much time it took for you to get in this condition. Notice I said, “condition”. I did not say, “How long have you had the symptom?”. Once the length of time of the condition is discovered, then and only then can an educated answer with regards to time occur.

Fortunately, the body heals faster than it will degenerate. From my experience, the average patient will take 1 month to heal 1 year of condition. Therefore, if the condition is found to have been present for 20 years, then 20 months is healing time. Another fortunate for you, is that what you feel (your symptoms) will clear up much sooner than your healing time.

The most common sign/symptom that you need chiropractic care: ___________________________________.

(More often than not, the most common sign that you need chiropractic care is no sign at all. Interference to your nervous system can occur, and cause no symptoms for years….silently causing damage to your health.)

Luckily for you, a chiropractor has ways of measuring your nervous system whether you have signs/symptoms or not.

Symptom driven

Responding to symptoms is emergency care, not health care. Necessary at times, however in emergency situations is it only necessary. First, determining if the situation is truly an emergency is a must. This is the hardest part.

If your situation is not an emergency, then symptoms could actually be a good thing. Remember that the intelligence of your body is more intelligent than you!

Of course the best course for anyone’s health is true prevention. It’s so simple, yet so difficult to do. Every choice you make either moves you closer to good health, or closer to a lower quality of life.

Your choice.
